As one of Ball State University’s administrative offices, the Office of the Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs oversees the academics of the university, and is here to serve the faculty as well.
Our office is responsible for assisting with the creation and implementation of the university’s strategic plan, immersive learning efforts, and curriculum of the eight academic colleges that make up the university. In addition, we handle some policy issues. For example, on our site you have access to forms you can download on the intellectual property policy and pecuniary interest, to name a few. Questions about promotion and tenure and special leave are also answered here.
Ball State is known for attracting top-flight educators, and its always a pleasure to honor you during our awards ceremonies. Our faculty members are outstanding, which serves as a fitting name for our fall faculty awards. We honor outstanding teachers, faculty, administrators, and researchers. In the spring, we honor our retirees, whom we call "Omegas," for their years of service to the university and education.
If you are a new faculty member, we have prepared an online new faculty orientation section that will help you navigate through Ball State. The guide will refer you to information concerning students, help you get around campus, and give you history of popular destinations on campus.
